VIDEO: County Still Has Large Presence in Balboa Park

In 1915, one year after the Panama Canal opened, San Diego decided to celebrate by staging the Panama-California exposition in Balboa Park. It was the biggest party in our history, and the County of San Diego had an exhibit you didn’t want to miss! Unfortunately, most of it is gone now, but one famous part still remains.
